It's hard to say what Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, is up to these days. We know he's cut back on his acting to focus on music. We know said music is some of the weirdest, most exciting stuff he's made yet.

What we don't know is why he's bouncing a basketball up and down the stairs of mansion. Or why he's doing karate on his lawn. Or why he's having philosophical discussions with Flying Lotus in a home movie theater.

It's unclear why he tweeted a link to the video above, titled simply "clapping for the wrong reasons [internet version]." And why the video seems like it might be a trailer for a horror movie that involves Daniel Fishel (Topanga from Boy Meets World), porn star Abella Anderson and Chance the Rapper losing to Trinidad James in Connect Four.

What we do know is that this video is kind of awesome, and that it has enabled us to produce the magnificent GIF below of Chance in a post-Connect Four rage. Whatever it's hinting at looks like it'll be dope.
